Good value and expected asics fit & quality. My new running shoes. I guess I'm a bit biased because I only buy asics athletic shoes. If you have wide feet you can't go wrong... I always buy a 1/2 size up and 4E width, and everything works out great for me

Gifted this to my husband and the poor guy got hurt the first time he ran in these shoes :( The size was excellent fit but the problem was with the insole. It is hard and sharp around the edge and is slightly projected in the middle part. After a 30 minute run, my hubby had blisters on both the feet even though he was wearing a thick cotton sock. I have attached pictures of shoe and my hubby's injured feet to explain it better. We wondered how his other shoes (he owns a pair of Brooks Ghost 6 and he loves them) are designed and those insoles are smartly tapered at the edges to prevent such injuries. Very disappointed with the design of this shoe and actually surprised not many of the reviewers faced this problem because the problem seems very obvious with the design of the insole!

Fits well and comfortably, a little tighter in the sides than expected but still good. A nice spring to them which helps in longer runs

These are good shoes, they fit well in most respects, but they are just not as wide as I'd hoped.I bought the 4E width, and it really doesn't feel any wider 2E. I have purchased other ASICS shoes in the past and have not noticed the toe-box being this tight. It isn't unwearable, it will just take for it to stretch out, I guess.

These shoes are designed for the neutral runner. This is a surprisingly great trail running shoe for the price. It has a nice thick and well cushioned midsole with GEL in the heel, not sure about the forefoot. The fit is good and the quality is up to the ASICS standard. I use these as my daily casual shoes as well as run in them because they feel so good on my feet. They work well on the road as well as the trail. The mesh upper is a tighter/closer knit making the shoe a good choice for running in cold weather. The trail designed outer sole works good if you get to run in the snow. If I had to use two words to describe this shoe, I would say "versatile and comfortable" and they are a great value as well.

I got these for my husband in blue for Christmas. They are a great color and style. He has a wide foot but he can normally wear a 10.5 medium width. I wanted him to be as comfortable as possible running because enjoys doing 2-5 mile runs a few times a week. He was a high school track star and 10+ years later has maintained his runner's routine and does 1-2 marathons a year for fun. The 10.5 4E was perfect for him and comfortable right out of the box. He wears them as every day shoes and has gone on one short test run with great results. He says they are the most comfortable running shoes he's ever had because he rarely is able to find the wides in his size. He can't wait to go for his first real run in them!

I ordered another style from ASICS in an 11 medium for comparison since I wasn't sure which one would fit better. The size 11 shoes were still too narrow in the toe box for him to feel comfortable while exercising.

I don't write reviews that often. But I felt compelled for this product. I usually don't order shoes online, but after the great reviews and the President's Day sale discount I thought I would try. I run about 5 miles, 3 times a week.

Overall I was disappointed and do not understand how this shoe got such great reviews. They are okay. But I have used Nike Max Air and New Balance in the past and those shoes are much more comfortable.

Also, this shoe runs very small. I typically wear size 10.5 shoes and always buy running shoes a half size larger. I bought size 11 and they are somewhat small.

Most importantly, after one 5 mile run the sole by the toe is detaching. See photo. Now a shoe should not be falling apart after one 5 mile run. If anyone from ASCIS reads this review please tell me how these are quality shoes. I glued the piece back with some shoe glue because I did not want to go through the trouble to send them back, and I can always use them for walking the dogs.

Overall, not that great and I would never buy again.

This was the first time I tried ASICS and was really hesitant because I'm flat-footed and need a wide show (4E). I usually buy New Balance but tried these ASICS because of the reasonable price and recommendations from friends. I'm so glad I did because theses shoes are the most comfortable athletic shoe I've ever worn. They felt great from the first time I put them on which never happens because of my wide foot. Botom line, great fit and a great shoe.
